Kids and their moms love this place where your ice cream, which is good, comes with a musical show including audience participation. Guys will be down the street at Buckalews.

I have been taking my kids to the showplace for years. The cast ( waiters) do a great job singing and dancing and poking fun at at least one person at your table. It is a must when visiting long beach island.
